If you experience seizures, getting them under control can change your life. Across the Sutter Health network, experienced doctors are committed to helping you achieve wellness by providing personalized and comprehensive care for seizures, epilepsy and epilepsy-related problems.
We offer the latest technology, including Wada testing and functional mapping imaging, to monitor and assess the exact nature of your epilepsy or seizure. We provide a wide range of treatment options to improve seizure control. Surgical and non-surgical options can include:
- Corpus callostomy
- EEG monitoring for epilepsy
- Medication management
- Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU)
- Temporal lobectomy
- Vagus nerve stimulation
See our Epilepsy Testing and Treatment FAQs for more information about video-EEG monitoring, Wada testing and epilepsy surgery.
We also specialize in epilepsy pacers. In 2014, research at Sutter’s California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco played a key role in the United States Food and Drug Administration’s approval of the epilepsy pacer. CPMC led the medical trials, and doctors there have the most experience in the world implanting the devices.
Some of our locations also participate in epilepsy research studies, offering you access to the most advanced neuroscience technology and treatment available. We directly apply new laboratory findings to clinical use and facilitate patient participation in appropriate clinical trials and testing.
